This week we are reviewing colors in Spanish. I have a very active 4 year-old. Although he’s a visual learner, his need to move means he doesn’t do well with just sitting around and completing worksheets or reviewing material in a book. This means I’m always having to come up with activities to teach him that combine these two traits.
For our Spanish review this week, I came up with four activities to complete throughout the week. There’s a free printable at the end of this post so don’t forget to download it!
Doing all four activities at once would be too much for my little wiggles, but older kids might be able to complete them all in one sitting.
The first activity is simply to review the colors in Spanish. I designed a colorful chart for this quick review.
For the second activity, I asked WJ to identify colors in Spanish. I created color squares and held each one up and simply asked him “¿De qué color es esto?” and he responded “Es ____(rojo, verde, etc.)” Then I asked him to find objects in our family room of the same color. This allowed him to get his wiggles out by wandering around the room looking for these items.
The third activity is to mix primary colors to make new colors. This activity allowed us to learn new Spanish vocabulary (crear = to create, and mezclar = to mix) while completing a fun art activity (i.e., mixing colors with paint). You can review the questions to ask in the free printable I included at the end of this post.
The fourth activity also combines Spanish with art. I created a printable with white squares and typed the the name of each color in its own square. For this activity, I brought out a crayon for each color and asked WJ to color each square with the correct color. You can also just ask your child to match the crayon with the correct square if they’re not that interested in coloring.
Here’s the free printable I promised with all four activities. You are free to use the printable for your personal use but please don’t share it. Of course, you can always direct others to this page so they can download it, too!
Have fun learning los colores!
